Monica Murphy did it again! More teen angst and drama and an addicting read you won’t be able to put down! When I read Just Friends earlier this year, I was desperate to get the sequel. It ended on a bit of a cliffy and I needed to know what was going to happen between Livvy and Ryan. Then, I found out it was about a different couple and was like huh? However, I was excited to read More than Friends, which was about Amanda and Tuttle. Amanda was one of my favorite characters in the

This story follows the previous book’s timeline yet the heroine of this book is Amanda Winters. Amanda is the nice friend that Livvy made for herself in the first book of this series, while the hero is the elusive Jordan Tuttle. Amanda and Jordan share a strong attraction and for the first portion of the story he works really hard for a chance with the skittish Amanda who’s been burned pretty badly before. She has insecurities an

"One day someone is going to hug you tight that all your broken pieces will stick back together."

There is something that shines in a young adult (YA) romance. Maybe it’s the movement, the faster pace, or the engagement of the characters with the reader. Perhaps it’s the childhood innocence resonating through the story. It could be the trip down memory lane it takes to those teenage years, sparking good and trying times. The glue that usually cements YA stories—with tough topics, some sexy scenes

Review at Of Pens and Pages

More than Friends is the sequel of Just Friends, but instead of reading it in Livvy's POV, we have it in Amanda's and Tuttle's perspectives. It's quite a relief since Amanda was my favorite in the group, and I was more invested in her and Tuttle's romance.

Amanda Walters still can't believe Jordan Tuttle, the star quarterback, is interested in her. Until recently, she never really stood out, and to suddenly have the interest of one of the most popular students i

More than Friends is the second full-length book in the Friends series. The first book focused on Olivia, her friends, her boyfriends, and was all from her POV. The ending leaves off on a cliffy which involves Olivia, Ryan, Tuttle, and Amanda. So to be honest, I was hoping we would get more of a conclusion for Ryan and Olivia before jumping into Amanda’s story.

However, the story continues to move forward for all characters, but this time we get Amanda and Tuttle’s point of view. We do get to se

Oh boy!! I'm not really one for YA reads I'll be honest I love some of the sexy in it. That's said sometimes I try them and being I read the last book in this series I really wanted to continue on with this series. This through is a different couple, with different troubles, and different issues...

Jordan Tuttle and Amanda are the kind of hero and heroine where opposites attract, Jordan is Rich, popular and the star Quarterback at their school. Amanda is a regular, normal down to ear

Monica Murphy did amazing things with More Than Friends. This story picks up where the last one left off, just from a different characters POV. The story is told in dual POV and it does end in a cliffhanger. The good part about that... more of these freaking amazing characters!

I'll be honest and say that I had a very difficult time connecting with Olivia in Just Friends, that was not a problem in this book. Amanda is a very relatable character, and even though she is flawed and makes mistake

Amanda Winters is a 17 yr. old high school senior who recently made a lot of changes to her life. After catching her ex cheating, she started hanging out with a new group of friends. She quit band, has a new job & has recently shared some amazing kisses with the most popular, hottest guy in school. Jordan Tuttle is the guy every girl wants. He's rich, gorgeous, smart & the star quarterback. He's a mystery to most. Never lets anyone too close & is mostly know

It’s no secret that Monica Murphy can write teen angst and drama like no other especially when she had readers on edge with Just Friends especially with the Livvy, Ryan, and Dustin love triangle. While readers were still reeling with that love triangle, secondary characters Amanda and Jordan were able to steal our hearts. This unexpected couple what made me so happy when I found out Monica Murphy was going to write book two on them.

So glad I got to read and couldn't put down. Less drama than the first book, but I kept turning the pages. Oh Tuttle let me count the ways. But Amanda, I doubt we'd be friends. She's okay, but not my favorite person. I didn't think she was a very good friend to Livvy but she was to everyone else. And that was a contradiction in her character. Is she secretly jealous of Livvy like Em? I doubt it, but it almost comes across that way. I'm looking forward to how things wrap up between Amanda and Tut ...more

Good freaking grief—that ending!!! We're left broken and aching and hanging again, but gosh did I devour every moment of reading this. It tore me apart; the cliffhanger frustrated me for sure, but then I'm glad at the same time since I know we'll get more of Tuttle and Amanda. Some time real soon, I hope! I mean, there's nothing I want more than that. Especially with how everything ended.

Jordan Tuttle is MY homecoming king. He's the ultimate guy girls dream and drool about having as a boyfriend

I received More Than Friends by Monica Murphy from a Goodreads giveaway, which I think is quite lucky as I doubt I’d have read it otherwise. And while this review is going to be quite scathing, I am glad that I read this book and I’ll tell you why. More Than Friends is a deeply problematic book. In fact, this book is so problematic that I find it to be more of an affront than the trash that is 50 Shades of Grey, and from me, that’s really saying something.

Since reading One Night on Wattpad I've been addicted to Jordon and Amanda's story. So when I found out they were going to have a whole book dedicated to them I was super excited to read it. This book. Oh this book!! So. Many. Feels.

Amanda is an ex-band "nerd" who got hurt by both her ex-boyfriend and her ex-best friend on the same night. It just so happens that on that night she also got wrapped up with Jordan Tuttle.

I was over the moon when I discovered that this book was all about Amanda and Tuttle. My interest had been piqued by their relationship and I was hoping that I would get the chance to know what was going on with this intriguing couple. As soon as this book hit my kindle, I was ready for some Tuttle swooning and Monica did not disappoint. I adored "More Than Friends" and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Amanda and Tuttle's story was not going to be done and dusted in one book.

One star off for's automatic. I just lose the vibe between book releases. Jane Austen never did it!!

I loved Jordan. He is brooder and has high walls but for some reason feels a connection to Amanda. She has self esteem issues typical to kids her age but she's bright and hard working and pretty. Part of her beauty is that she doesn't realize how pretty she is.

Her friend, Olivia is a great friend. I was ambivalent about Ryan but his brother, Eli, was a hoot and a handful!! Fun.

“Everything’s better as long as she’s part of it. And that’s the scariest part of all.”

As per book one, Just Friends, this was a book chock full of drama, drama, drama, teen angst, fickle friends, phoney friendships, bitter blood and more drama, drama, drama and I loved it. This book centres around the relationship between Amanda and Jordan Tuttle, a couple I thought had the potential to make it, but it seems both have their

For all of us who have fell in love with Monica Murphy's mature Young Adult/ New Adult series, Friends, there is no doubt after meeting Jordan Tuttle (known as Tuttle) that we had to have more of this broody, sexy, gorgeous jock star quarterback. And we got a swoon-worthy load of our beautiful jock in More Than Friends, book two, but we were left hanging on a cliff, and yes, I'm going to be hanging on to that nail-baiting cliffy, waiting for the rest of Tuttle and Amanda's story, and you better

My Review:

Ryan, who?! OMG I want my own Tuttle! Hell, I want Jordan Tuttle! Ok, now that I got that off my chest, let's continue... More Than Friends gave me such feels I was obsessed, lusting && desperately in love with a high school fictional character && just like poor Amanda my brain was fighting in my heart!

I thought book one Just Friends were amazing (trust me it was) But More Than Friends was even more breathtaking, literally the relationship between Tuttle && Amanda was perfect when it
3.75 stars.

Amanda and Tuttle's story was so much better than Liv's story. Though this book left you with a cliffhanger I felt like this story accomplished more IMO. I can't wait to read the conclusion of Amanda and Tuttle's story.

This was just as addicting as the first book and the prequel! I couldn't put it down. I still have some of the same feelings about this book as the last book. It isn't easy for me to rate or review since this is a "guilty pleasure" kind of book.

Monica Murphy has completely scored with More than Friends, but let’s be honest, I was pulled in by Amanda and Tuttle from book one. Something about him just drew me in, and like Amanda, it is hard to resist. Just be prepared that this story will hurt, but in the best absolute way in which an author can hurt a reader.

Why, why, why? I've loved Amanda and Tuttle since I met them in Just Friends, but did you have to do that to me... again? Although I shouldn't be surprised since it seems to be Monica Murphy's signature move!! This book gives hope to all the good girls out there that they can snag the popular guy from school. So yes, I'm still hooked to this world, and I will be reading more, because... Jordan Tuttle!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of More than Friends by Monica Murphy. A huge thank you to the author for the free copy and for making my day!

I was first introduced to Amanda and Tuttle (I kept misreading it as turtle for some reason) in the novella, One Night. Although I did not manage to read Just Friends, I was immediately enthralled by the endless possibilities of their relationship and More Than Friends was a gift from the Gods, namely Monica Murphy.

Wanna go back to high school?! Yeah I didn't think I did either until I dove into the FRIENDS series by Monica Murphy. I bet you're thinking high school=YA, but this series is so much more, kinda like NA but with high schoolers. And trust me, once you start you'll be addicted!! I binge read these books in just a few days!!

So in the prequel, One Night, we meet Olivia, Dustin and Emily, three inseparable best friends and we learn a bit about each character. There's angst, drama and many laugh out
